Hilton Des Moines Downtown
Des Moines, Iowa
PMC served as owner’s representative for a new 330-key convention center hotel connected via bridge to the Iowa Event Center (IEC) and Wells Fargo Arena. The hotel is a public-private-partnership (P3) whereby The Weitz Company served as the developer and contractor providing financing to deliver the project to the IEC Hotel Corporation, a not-for-profit. Upon completion, permanent financing was placed with a leaseback agreement.
